“The Ballad of the USS Liberty” is a short song video about the Israeli false-flag attack on the U.S. Navy ship off the coast of Egypt in June 1967. The video and comment section beneath the YouTube video are both highly-recommended viewing.
The comment section includes some very interesting comments, such as these from Ward Boston, senior legal counsel for the U.S. Navy’s Court of Inquiry into the murderous Israeli assault on the USS Liberty:
I know from personal conversations I had with Admiral Kidd that President Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara ordered him to conclude that the attack was a case of “mistaken identity” despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
Admiral Kidd told me, after returning from Washington, D.C. that he had been ordered to sit down with two civilians from either the White House or the Defense Department, and rewrite portions of the court’s findings.
Admiral Kidd also told me that he had been ordered to “put the lid” on everything having to do with the attack on the USS LIBERTY. We were never to speak of it and we were to caution everyone else involved that they could never speak of it again.
